We toured this house, the Juliette Gordon Low home, and the Davenport House in a combined tour deal, and this was our favorite by far. Unlike the Juliette Gordon Low home, in which the tour is primarily about the Girl Scout founder and her many talents, this home was a balanced view of both the many family members and their extensive, famous connections and the period furniture/architectural details. In fact, most, if not all, pieces were connected to the family in some way--even the 170+-year-old bed quilts in a few rooms! The Davenport home, however, was filled with period pieces, but few were actually owned by the family itself. Tour around lunchtime for a smaller group, too, and you are able to ask more questions of the very knowledgable guides.
